Emer Scanlon

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

“Emer has changed the culture of safe feeding in Exeter. There are simply 100’s of babies who enjoy feeding because of how Emer has engaged, motivated, educated parents and the whole NNU team. Babies who may be on the unit for up to 12-15 weeks will have consistent feeding. Emer has made this huge culture change happen. This is phenomenal on so many levels and lasts a life team for this patient group and their families.

Emer is fantastic to work with. She has a calm and relaxed approach to members of staff and parents. She is patient and will take the time explaining things to parents about feeding. Emer is a pleasure to work with.

Takes time with the patients and their families to explain the reasons for SALT being involved. Has a calm and patient manor.”
